Outlook 2013 cannot logon to gmail any more

Posted by jpluimers on 2019/09/20

A problem on a PC I did not use often: as of a sudden, Outlook 2013 could not access a gmail account any more.

Luckily, Outlook showed me this message in a dialog box:

Please log in via your web browser: https://support.google.com/mail/accounts/answer/78754 (Failure)

This directed me to [WayBack] Use IMAP to check Gmail on other email clients – Gmail Help

In turn that pointed to [WayBack] Let less secure apps access your account – Google Account Help

Finally that one indicated the configuration page changed to https://myaccount.google.com/lesssecureapps

This is similar to the cause of “the user name or password for imap.gmail is incorrect” – iPad, iPod or iPhone with iOS < 7

It all comes down to gmail forcing OAUTH2: [WayBack] tls – Why doesn’t outlook 2013 meet modern security standards? – Information Security Stack Exchange

Reminder to self: check if [WayBack] Dataset Search still exists.

When archiving in the WayBack machine returns error 400: clear your cookies

Posted by jpluimers on 2019/08/16

When archiving pages in the WayBack machine, despite Privacy Badger having set to “save no cookies”, it still managed to set truckloads of cookies.

So I used the Chrome settings in chrome://settings/content/cookies to disable cookies and now everything is fine.
